Pet Passport Barbados
REGULATIONS FOR TAKING A PET DOG OR CAT TO BARBADOS
Barbados requires an Import Permit obtained from the Chief Veterinary Officer before the importation of all cats, dogs, other warm blooded animals, reptiles and birds.
Your pet must have a 15 digit ISO pet microchip and vaccinated for rabies and various other diseases and have a Blood Titer Test 6 months prior to travel. If your pet' microchip is not ISO 11784/11785 compliant, you can bring your own microchip scanner.
If traveling from one of the Third Countries such as the United States or Canada, the dog or cat must have been a resident of that country for a minimum of six months. It must have a blood titre test and follow the procedure to enter the United Kingdom. The pet can then travel directly from the UK to Barbados.
A USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must complete the Barbados Veterinary Certificate for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included. This completes your cat or dog passport to Barbados.
A Veterinary Officer must examine the animal before it is allowed to leave the customs area.
You must make prior arrangements for the Country Veterinarian to meet your pet on arrival for inspection, there is a fee for the inspection.
Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet may be refused entry and the relevant authority in consultation with an authorized veterinarian can decide to return the pet home, or place your cat or dog in quarantine at the expense of the owner or natural person responsible for the pet, or as a last resort, without financial compensation, put the pet down where the return trip home or quarantine cannot be arranged.
All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements as to a limit on the number of animals and a certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.
